and there is a lot of work to do and i think that the urgency is felt by the educators and we will have more information and this is going to be a sea change in what in terms of what the students will learn, but i will say this, that once the students are able to perform in a true, authentic way on the common core state standards, we will be competitive with the rest of the world in ways that we are currently are not. and so, this is a good thing, but there is going to be growing pains and more to come with that. but it is a very timely question, dr. murase thank you. >> i think that tom rees,, this is his last board of education meeting before he retires. so, we just, we could not think about not having you address a question mr. reese. so the question was... dr. murase asked a question about in reference to the public comment. >> it was in the public comment earlier by the labor partners and sciu and characterizing the budget as distinguishing between the certificated and classified and that there were moneys in the budget for the certificated but not the classified and i wanted to underst

conversation that we ought to have about what is the most appropriate way for us to educate voters, but i am really concerned that if voters receive a handbook that has the full text of everything but on one measure have no text whatsoever, not even 20 pages worth. i can understand why 100 pages is an issue but not even 20 pages. i think that will create more questions and providing the first 20 pages shows what we're talking about. let me also say when it comes to the ballot the 20 pages are the first five pages of the ordinance in question and page of supportive document so you're getting the gift of what the ordinance is about in the first five pages and a little more information and people could go to the library. they could go to the internet, et cetera, so i think we ought to explain and have that portion of the measure be in the ballot, and i also think that 20 pages was what supervisor wiener suggested is an appropriate cut off and i am happy to adopt that as part of the amendment of what we're talking about today. >> thank you. my comments are that i think that it is important
in education and advocacy, research, training and increasingly peer support services. so another thing to know about us, we are a consumer-run organization, a mental health consumer-run organization. so it really gives us a unique perspective on the work we do on behalf of folks in san francisco. to just talk briefly about our work with hoarding, i guess it's been about 15, 16 years, close to 16 years that mental health association of san francisco has worked on hoarding and cluttering challenges specifically i have been here at four years and worked ten years ago on prop 63 when it was first put op the ballot. back then, it was a much smaller organization and it came about by a group of advocates and consumer advocates who identified hoarding and cluttering as a unique challenge to san francisco in particular and this was well-before the tv shows and before it had a lot of notoriety and brought out in some circumstances and it was a group of folks, advocates in our office, to deal with these challenges and we need a place to come and meet and talk about it and give each other peer support. t
that there is tension in the library community. i think that there is fair to say that that i am educated by our commenters to understand that is happening. we can only act on what is brought to us and there is... and i am glad that others agree that there is not a violation along these lines. and these things that are discussed here are not related to the comments, or are now embodied in a legal way of the complaints that were brought to us. so whatever unhappiness is going on we have not been getting. and we may not have the authority to deal with those issue and only acting on what is brought here and we have reached the result. >> i agree with you. >> if there are violations and not necessarily referring to to the sunshine ordinances and to other activities and you have the evidence and why not take it to an investigative reporter. >> and then you surprised me. >> and so, we have raoefmd that conclusion and now we are moving on to the next case. >> mr. st. croix? >> so, under chapter two the regulations there is not a staff memo or a staff recommendation, there is a presumption of the task f
with women's policies or policies that directly impact women or has more focus on women like education and abortion and social services and stuff like that. one of the points that you make is somewhat more conventional wisdom but i still think it's true. women are seen as weak on defense, and that they have to overcome and prove themselves a little bit more than their male colleagues might. but still they say gender doesn't have much influence on how women are really approached legislating on the defense policy that there was a pretty straightforward in terms of what you term hard and soft defense issues. the weapon system for the veterans and other sort of personal issues. you talk a little bit about what you found and anything that may have surprised you? >> guest: there is an assumption that women are going to be weak on defense policies and not be as interested were strong on creating a strong military. and i found that there was no evidence of that. instead senators come at it from a parochial point of view. so there is a lot of do i have defense contracting my state, to have a mi
the fire for individual rights and education. why did they say that is racist? >> it is part the grand tapestry. it is another example of how people take something that is an incentive you watch the whole biddy it is it in nerd adorable making geek jokes and it is based on a parity. john: they're trying to say we're not totally nerd's we like music. >> they are saying we are totally nerds but they are all white and male. >> a group of friends in the was a south asian students and some female students but it was a group of white friends to do the free video to promote the engineering departme was a professor and head grad students said this represents white supremacy. john: uc more of this now? >> the victory of the right not to be offended the false idea. john: and the assumption it offended you if you were right -- white? >> as a then the people who wrote the article it is hard to imagine ybody was offended but we have given privileged to the idea that we are not allowed to contradict and campuses are making it worse. >> and those are easily offended can dictate other's behavior. >> t
or the obligation of this commission, is a certain amount of education. and if in fact the arts commission did not follow what 67.26 provides, it seems to me that we had an obligation to say this they didn't. what are the consequences of it? we don't know, it certainly serves as a reminder to these other agency and the commission, that if they are going to redact the material, that they have got to comply with what the 67.26. >> what i don't want is the especially that is what we mean and i don't want to seem like we are saying phone numbers and e-mail address and personal addresses cannot be redacted. >> separate question. >> right. >> so whatever our motion is, i think that we need to be clear about it. because if we said that we failed to comply with 67-26. >> you could have done the right thing but the wrong way. >> but do you want to try a motion? >> you were starting to. >> i will try, but i could use help. >> the commission finds a violation of 67-26 by the... so the custodian of records, miss patterson or the arts commission, that is a bracket to be completed, for improperly redacting,
there was nothing to excite an ambition for negatives for education in this time and place. his mother signed her name with an x. his stepmother who was caring and a great blessing she signed her name with an x. his father could barely sign his name. lincoln said he could bungle his name. there were schools but a big part behalf instructors did was to beat the kids. okay. lincoln told a story in the white house thattured what -- captured what the educational environment was like. he said there was a school room of kids and reading from the book of danielle, you have 0st cast your mind back when it was legal to read the bible in the school room in america, and they are reading from the book and the one boy stumbles over the name. boom, hit up against the head.
killed. they were on the educational trip from china. officials believe that they were sitting in the baof the plane. >> take a okas these pictures are from the ntsb, showing you how they were hanging from the overhead bins. >> they tossed knives so they could cut them free from their seat belts. so kpix 5 tried to recap that, coming up with the same results. >> your eyes should be able to judge what you're going to land. >> they fly a simulated approach. too low and too slow. just like their flight 214 before crashing. >> so i'm going to bring the power back now. and to pick it up just a little bit for you to see now. get it closely there. and so you can see them bring that back. and now that's the one right there. do you see that? you see? >> why didn't they know they were flying low? that will be a big part of the investigation. one thing being talked about is that it is out of service, it's used to navigate the runway. >> this is a visual approach. what it means is that you can fly it visually. it was a clear day, good visibility, they were cleared for an approach. >> they
special education, cuts and i wanted to understand what was the funding rubric to determine the size of those cuts? and then finally, we have had several presentations about the common core which is on the horizon and there is some concern about you know, r, and will the teachers be well trained for the common core and so i would like to know what investments we are making in professional development. >> so, i put down four questions, commissioner, and so the first one, regarding the rainy day reserve and this is referenced in the materials that you have received. and so, it is what the clarification now and i appreciate your question about the, what this is meant to signify and so the amounts just to name the amounts, that are included in the three-year projection, so for next year, 13, 14, we expect and in fact, the mayor's budget includes 5.8 million dollars of the rainy day reserve being appropriated to the district. and the following year, 14, 15, the third year 15, 16 is 3.3 million so those are just the calculations of the balance of the rainy day reserve that would be reduced
? >> what i mean is that my education, i have been looking at old movies that i love. we speak about the reputation of the parisian, which was supposed to dress very well. i think that, you know, in france, the eccentricity -- for me, eccentricity is very chic and it is what i love. it is so much about the good taste, which paralyzed. it is still a city where everybody meets profession, sure, but it is sad that you did not seek only may be in the young people, but you do not see when people are in the rain, let's say, in society, like having the joy to address. like you have to be like the color of the street of paris. you ought not to be remarkable. it is very demanding of the people. so i said to the people, no, we have to be like everyone else. in london, it was completely different, and it still is. more distance that makes them, for me, more fascinating than the french. >> we want to take questions from the audience, but i did just want to ask you a quick question about your work in movies because that has been so extraordinarily exceptional. i think probably a lot of people --
